What is My Home Worth? Don't be Naive

how much is my home worth, house valueThere's a saying in the real estate industry wrapped around the question "what is my home worth?" that gives you different perspectives depending on which side of the fence you're on.

"If you are buying, it's a house. If you are selling, it's a home" and speaks to personal attachment, motives, emotional and financial investment.

Determining fair market value is the most important part of listing a home if you expect it to sell; one could easily say it's half the battle - the other half being marketing effectively.
